Hi Finn. On this model in a normal situation when all is working do you have to press the clutch to start the engine . As most Nissan's depending where built have to have this safety option to start. If yes then check the Clutch safety switch by disconnecting and using a paper clip jump the pins and then try and start . The other possibilities are ,Starter circuit damage ,Wiring damageBad connections .Starter relay, Ignition switch malfunction . Check these issues first then get back to me if needed . Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,A bad rating does not constitute a refund.If you are not happy or you have sorted out your problem before the answer then please let me know with the reply button .Kind regards Greg.
